:3ds: Mario Kart 7 - $17

Are people getting 50% also for the GOTY versions?

Well it looks like my PS3 launch fat is dying. Any idea how stringently they check the hardware to see if it works before trade ins? It's fine in the XMB but freezes up after about a few minutes of gameplay.

they usually turn it on and then put a game in to make sure it can read discs, I've never seen them actually play a system

Guy at my store played a few minutes of COD on me, but he did fail to notice the fact that there was no warranty seal and the serial # was taped on... so yeah.

I did get denied for the no warranty at one gamestop though, so YMMV on how much they check.

There was some dude in front of me trying to trade in same sealed games. You could tell the GS emplyee was getting slightly frustrated about what she couldn't tell him. She finally suggested selling them on ebay.

He was slow. They're all slow around here.

Traded in the following:
Halo CE Anniversary - $13
Skyrim (360) - $20
Uncharted 1 - $4
Borderlands (360) - $10
Super Mario 3D Land - $17
Pokemond Diamond - $12
Wii Sports - $5
Xbox 360 Wired Headset - $5

After all the bonuses and a $2 refurb fee on Wii Sports, because it was scratched to hell, I got $132.80. I was able to buy Borderlands 2 and pre-order and pay in full Halo 4 and still have $4.59 left over. I know I could have probably waited or gotten a better deal on these two games but being able to buy them with credit from games I'll never touch again instead of cash really persuaded me.

They would not take the Wii I wanted to trade because it's missing some sort of latch they said. I have no idea what the latch thing is, I received the Wii for free and never bothered with it except to make sure it works. Can anyone tell me what the latch is, or where I could get one cheap?

So the biggest drawback to going to 6 GS in one day is telling each employee in multiple ways you do not want to pre-order anything while your trade in credit grows and grows.

Do they take broken systems for less credit or do they not take them at all?

You are correct about Halo Reach for non PUR members. However, Halo Reach is $17 but with 50% bump it is $25.50 AND 10% bump for PUR members for $1.7 making it $27.20

Also, I had 50% trade in coupon (plus 10% for PUR card) for last weeks steal of the week and as such got $24 for Sid Meier's Civilization ($15 + $7.50 + $1.50). I did not expect the base value to rise for the 360 version but it did unlike the PS3 version. Felt better about it since I did the GOW saga trade separate with Halo Reach for 2 / $40 list and could have gotten more had I combined it with the 50% since it did not get any bump other than 10% PUR bonus.

It might be the cover that goes over the Gamecube memory card/controller slots. If those are exposed, then that's what it is.

how about you not be such a crappy person with crappy morals...and just buy a new system. it seem as though you've had pretty good use out of ur launch ps3...ur basically gonna let some other victim deal with ur bs ps3 that they paid 180 plus for that freezes after a few minutes of gameplay. how the hell would you feel if u got a system like that?

Ok because I was trying to figure out how that one person got $117 in tread credit..does not add up.

I was trying to figure out that too and it looks like he may have gotten the tiered trade bonus of 30% plus 10% for PUR on Borderlands GOTY which is the only way it adds up to $117 but it still makes no sense since that applies to 7 or more games. Weird.

$17 + $8.5 + $1.7 = $27.20
$17 + $8.5 + $1.7 = $27.20
$17 + $8.5 + $1.7 = $27.20
$9 + $4.5 + $.9 = $14.40
$15 + $4.5 + $1.5 = $21.00

Total: $117.00

It's the same reason LFD 1/2 are so high: GS stopped buying the game from the publisher, demand for it has increased (sequel coming out,) company inventory is low, GS needs copies, and customers that don't know better are ok paying $36-$40 for a used copy from GS.

You better believe I'm trading in RE 6 on Oct. 31 (or sooner if I beat all the campaigns, done with Leon and on Ch. 5 with Chris) to get at least $30 to pay off my BLOPS 2. F Capcom with that game. Anyone waiting for RE should just see the deluge of used copies coming in. Playing the Walking Dead today and then RE 6 just shows the two extremes of how quicktime events work/don't work.

Yes, after asking a friend he said the same thing. That kind of sucks, I'm not sure how I could replace that.
